2016 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley
A wonderful expression of regional character, the Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet seamlessly blends bright fruit with savory notes and a graceful, flowing texture. Look for brushy aromas of sage and thyme embellishing a core of red fruit, rich with wild strawberry, raspberry, and just-picked plum. Energized by fresh acidity, the wine delivers its flavors in an elegant, medium body that—thanks to a lithe build and fine, tightly knit tannins—provides deceptive intensity.Our 2016 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is ruby in color with a magenta rim. It has an enticing nose of cassis, blackberry, vanilla, sage and spearmint. Upon entry, this wine builds from potpourri and bramble to a bright pop of raspberry on the mid-palate. A juicy finish with chewy tannins and a medium length, it will provide drinking pleasure through 2042 with proper cellaring.
